Well-made but uneven, "The Front Runner" is a less a film for general movie-goers than for political junkies.

Does an excellent job assembling pieces and preparing viewers for the larger picture but disappoints in its ability to tell a stand-alone story.

A generic espionage/crime thriller; although briskly paced, the plot is far from airtight and demands a deus ex machina to reach its climax.

A superficially entertaining science-fiction action/adventure film that might have worked better had it focused more on the “science fiction” elements and less on the “action/adventure” ones.

Run Time: 1:20
U.S. Release Date: 2018-11-02
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Suzi Yoonessi
Cast: Charlene deGuzman, John Hawkes, Melissa Leo, Paul James

The performances of Charlene deGuzman and co-star John Hawkes keep the viewer engaged as the screenplay touches all the expected bases.

What saves "Bohemian Rhapsody" from being an historically inaccurate train wreck is the strength of the musical sequences, which are electric.

Despite featuring strong performances and containing some individually potent scenes, the film’s style keeps the viewer at arm’s length.

Run Time: 2:20
U.S. Release Date: 2018-10-12
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller/Comedy
Director: Drew Goddard
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Chris Hemsworth, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman

Has problems beyond its inability to stick the ending but that’s the one that ultimately sinks it.

Run Time: 1:32
U.S. Release Date: 2018-10-05
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Director: David Lowery
Cast: Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Tika Sumpter

If there’s a reason to see the movie, it’s Redford, whose charismatic, mature presence argues that age has done nothing to diminish his ability to command the screen.

Run Time: 1:16
U.S. Release Date: 2018-10-05
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Violence, Adult Themes)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Jeremy Ungar
Cast: Jessie T. Usher, Will Brill, Bella Thorne

To be effective, "Ride" needs to nursemaid the slow-build tension but director Jeremy Ungar rushes through too many scenes.
